The 28th of April is a date when this month already reaches its deep maturity and gains experience to deal with certain challenges of life. It can be a lonely time, but it could also be quite the opposite, making a person deal with too many things and too many people at once. This experience is what makes those born on this date ready to face an archetypal battle between the frailty of the Moon and the roughness of Mars.

April 28th Horoscope

MOON – MARS – (Pluto) – SATURN

Straightforward and strong, those born on April 28th might have some issues with emotions, shoving them aside or mistaking them for weakness. Their sensitivity comes as a burden of sorts, but they often fail to see that it is their greatest strength of all. The Moon and Mars together speak of hurts and bruises, all those things that a person summons but isn't ready for. They will point to a hasty life filled with experiences that cross physical or emotional limits, based on the presumption that one is valuable only for the strength seen in denial of emotions. This is a difficult situation for a Taurus, made out of color and emotion in its primal flow, but it is a task that offers great liberation through connecting with planet Earth.

Behind the first scene we see here, we can also find the Sun in an awkward situation with Saturn, explaining the imbalance of the feminine and masculine that is often too fragile to hold on to. The lack of fatherly image is of essence here and one's ego could fall as they build strength of heart, only to discover that they have been true to who they are all along.

Love and Emotions

Since their entire world revolves around emotional acceptance, romance is the area of life that will be emphasized. They will often have several important relationships, always connecting on a deeper plane, never settling for anything superficial or casual. Quite traditional in their core, they could create a lot of pressure on their own inner need to be freer, more relaxed, dancing, singing, and embracing life in full bloom along with a number of romances that would naturally follow.

They seek stability in order to feel safe. Sudden changes and disappointments won't give them any sense of security. This could make them choose a partner that doesn't really satisfy their true emotional needs, only because they seem to be someone who wouldn't be able to hurt them. If fear governs their actions, they could spend a long time in a system that doesn't value them like they should be valued. They need to consider setting free if health issues start to surface, such as lower stomach conditions, problems with reproductive organs or large hormonal shifts that throw them into emotional loops they cannot handle.


A person born on April 28th is on a mission to uncover their true personality, only to express it in such a way to really be understood. Emotional outbursts won't help for they only stand for issues with control or inability to stay in touch with their healthy personality. They need to stay calm while talking to other people, to develop creative ways to manifest what they carry within. It is conversation and self-expression that needs their complete focus, but this only comes when emotional issues are dealt with, embraced, and they build true tenderness towards their own heart.

What They Excel In

With an incredible depth, individuals born on the 28th of April have the ability to sense emotions in other people. Just like they should never repress their own, they must learn to see that they stand for the strength in others, not their weakness. Compassion allows them to excel in teamwork, people skills, and relating with others no matter their background. They will also excel teaching in courses on anger management, working with people who are aggressive and badly hurt, in psychology, psychiatry or medicine.

April 28th Birthday Gift

An individual born on the 28th of April enjoys traditional presents such as flowers and jewelry, or neckties, watches, and pens. They like to feel appreciated but also need balance in their lives and actions that respect their system of value. Surprises are not really as important as bonding and proof of faithfulness and dedication, so choose something classic, a bit expensive, and of course – beautiful. Still, be careful to hold on to cozy feelings, things that are easy to touch or smell, and those they will feel comfortable wearing or having in their life.

Positive Traits for April 28th Born

Straightforward, specific, grounded, and practical, they will overcome their issues with conflict to follow their motivation and fight for their goals and things they love. Loyal, true, respectful for traditional value and down to Earth, they can help those who are too detached or lost.

Negative Traits for April 28th Born

Angry, frustrated and agitated, they can become truly unpleasant towards those they see as weak, dishonest, or shady. Inflexible in their opinions, they get judgmental and stubborn in the effort to always be right.

Healing Crystal

The best stone to help with emotional and possible conflict or anger issues in those born on April 28th is rhodonite. It is a crystal that enables them to discover their inner talents, connect with others, and find room in their heart for forgiveness. Leading to emotional balance, it will also help their body and their heart, healing them after traumatic experiences or situations in which they were attacked or abused in any way.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Taurus representatives born on April 28th:

"A Sleigh on Land Uncovered by Snow"

The symbol for this date will instantly remind us of friction and difficulty one must have in their movements, as if they were born poorly adapted to the family basis they need to stay in. This will affect their grounding and be too rough for their sensitive nature, and the purpose they were intended to find in this lifetime. What they need to realize is that this sleigh may function on any surface if the angle is steep enough, but it doesn't have to and might just wait for the next snow to fall.
